AccessibleEU European Event – Implementing accessibility legislation. Global Experiences and perspectives for Exchanging and Learning (24-WS-EU-01)

These AccessibleEU workshops are organised within the Zero Project Conference 2024 to support the implementation of European accessibility policies and legislation.

The Disability Rights Movement, which started in the US about 80 years ago, transferred the model of disability from a medical over an environmental towards a rights-based approach. The UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disability (UNCRPD) is a globally accepted and ratified expression of this paradigmatic change at global level. It is implemented and regulated differently in the diversity of societies and cultures. A rich set of experiences and models can be found to learn from.

This is of particular importance when Accessibility and Inclusion measures are regulated by public administrations according to legally-binding instruments, e.g. in the implementation of the European Accessibility Act (EAA) which requires implementation of the EAA at national level and in line with the mission of the UNCRPD. To facilitate exchange, learning and avoiding mistakes this session invites exemplary and interesting role models and applications. It will provide insights how to address issues as awareness raising, education, legislation, administration, monitoring and enforcement, success factors and stories, sustainability, financing…
